It's too early to tell on the Schenn-JVR deal, clearly. I suspect that will end up looking better for Toronto, but who knows. It's possible that Luke's play coupled with whatever benefit the move provides Brayden in terms of comfort, etc., will be worth it for the Flyers, but JVr seemed like a pretty big piece to give up for another second pairing defenseman.
That said, I'm not entirely clear what you're referring to, implying the Flyers have a record of badly losing deals. Certainly not the Richards and Carter trades, right? Sure, they won a cup, in LA, and most Flyers fans are happy for them, but I doubt you'd find many who would swap the pieces we got in return to have them back...
Was just kidding..
The versteeg and JVR trades werent all that lopsided. The versteeg trade wouldnt have looked so bad if you hadnt ended up flipping him for a 2nd...
